Harvard woman killed in Interstate 90 crash near Schaumburg

A 51-year-old Harvard woman is dead following a two-vehicle crash Tuesday morning on Interstate 90 near Schaumburg.

Aimee C. Simmons was driving in the far-right eastbound lanes of I-90 at about 8:40 a.m. when she rear-ended a tractor-trailer that had stopped due to traffic congestion, Illinois State Police officials said.

Simmons was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office determined following an autopsy Wednesday that Simmons died as a result of multiple injuries suffered in the crash, which was ruled an accident.
